Item 1.01Entry Into Material Definitive Agreement.


On January 8, 2016, Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a third amendment (the "Third Amendment") to its Amended and Restated Term Loan Agreement (as amended, the “Term Loan Agreement”) with Capital Royalty Partners II L.P. and its affiliate funds. The Term Loan Agreement was previously amended by Amendment No. 1 dated June 20, 2014, and Amendment No. 2 dated February 23, 2015.


Under the Term Loan Agreement, the Company has aggregate borrowings outstanding of $30.0 million (such amount, the “First Tranche”). Pursuant to the Third Amendment, the Company may borrow up to an additional $50.0 million. The Third Amendment requires the Company to draw $15.0 million (such amount, the “Second Tranche”) in January 2016, and the Third Amendment provides the Company with a one-time option to draw up to an additional $35.0 million in increments of $5.0 million on or before December 31, 2016 (such amount, to the extent drawn, the “Third Tranche”).


The other principal terms of the Term Loan Agreement were not amended by the Third Amendment. Accordingly, interest continues to be payable, at the Company’s option, (i) in cash at a rate of 11.5% per annum or (ii) at a rate of 9.5% of the 11.5% per annum in cash and 2.0% of the 11.5% per annum (the “PIK Loan”) to be added to the principal of the loan and subject to accruing interest. Interest-only payments continue to be due quarterly on March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 31 of each year of the interest-only payment period, which ends on December 31, 2019. The principal balance continues to be due on March 31, 2020 (the “Maturity Date”).  The Term Loan Agreement provides for prepayment fees of three percent (3.0%) of the outstanding balance of the loan if the loan is repaid prior to March 31, 2015. The prepayment fee is reduced by one percent (1.0%) per year for each subsequent year until maturity. The principal financial covenants continue to require that the Company attain minimum annual revenues of $50 million in 2015, $65 million in 2016, $80 million in 2017 and $95 million thereafter.


Under the Third Amendment, the Company has agreed to pay, on the earlier of (i) the Maturity Date; (ii) the date that the loan under the Term Loan Agreement becomes due, and (iii) the date on which the Company makes a voluntary pre-payment of the loan, a  financing fee equal to three percent (3.0%) of the sum of (x) the aggregate amount of the Second Tranche and Third Tranche drawn, and (y) any PIK Loans issued in relation to the Second Tranche and Third Tranche, if applicable.


The foregoing description of the Term Loan Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the terms and conditions of the Term Loan Agreement, as previously amended, and the Third Amendment, a copy of which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 (the “Annual Report”).
